Books ordered over the Christmas period

I ordered a number of books from to read over the Christmas holiday and New Year.

The Concise 48 Laws Of Power
Robert Greene
ISBN 978-1 86197 404-4
The Concise 48 Laws Of Power was a fantastic read. Each Law is only a few pages long but concise and full of great quotes. This book is ideal for reading whenever you have a spare 5 minutes.

The Google Story
David A. Vise
ISBN-10: 0330440055
ISBN-13: 978-0330440059
This is a very light, well written, relaxing read that simply covers the Google story to date albeit it doesn’t reveal anything radically new that you couldn’t probably piece together by searching the internet.

Temporal Data and the Relational Model
C.J.Date, Hugh Darwen, Nikos A.Lorentzos
ISBN-10: 1558608559
ISBN-13: 978-1558608559
This looks like a heavy read. The use of time in databases has always bugged me from my days as a developer many years ago. Not sure at the moment when I will get around to reading this one.

Tricks of the Mind
Derren Brown
ISBN-10: 1905026269
ISBN-13: 978-1905026265
I have started reading. Very good so far.

ISBN-13: 978-0273707899

The Long Tail: How Endless Choice Is Creating Unlimited Demand
